By Luca Di Gaspero,Andrea Schaerf,Thomas Stützle

Metaheuristics were a really energetic learn subject for greater than twenty years. in this time many new metaheuristic options were devised, they've been experimentally demonstrated and more advantageous on tough benchmark difficulties, they usually have confirmed to be very important instruments for tackling optimization initiatives in a good number of useful functions. In different phrases, metaheuristics are these days confirmed as one of many major seek paradigms for tackling computationally challenging difficulties. nonetheless, there are a number of learn demanding situations within the sector of metaheuristics. those demanding situations diversity from extra basic questions about theoretical houses and function promises, empirical set of rules research, the powerful configuration of metaheuristic algorithms, methods to mix metaheuristics with different algorithmic recommendations, in the direction of extending the to be had recommendations to take on ever more difficult problems.

This edited quantity grew out of the contributions offered on the 9th Metaheuristics overseas convention that used to be held in Udine, Italy, 25-28 July 2011. The convention comprised 117 shows of peer-reviewed contributions and three invited talks, and it's been attended by way of 169 delegates. The chapters which are accrued during this publication exemplify contributions to a number of of the study instructions defined above.
